    “I always get a little anxious at this time of year.  There’s so much change going on in the house.  Lots of people dropping by unexpectedly and I thought from what you’ve taught me all year it was my job to answer the door first!  But, everyone gets so bent out of shape when I greet them with appropriate exuberance - especially Aunty Shirley.

On top of this, the sky gets dark, and it can get windier and then the thunder itself happens - it is a build-up of events. No wonder with all of these things happening dogs freak out. ...read more
